Postcard from home

I’m shattered. All I’ve done is eat and sleep since I’ve come home. I’m waiting for my holiday snaps to come back but for now, it’s zzzzzz from me!

Note from mum: Smudge is permanently in the recovery position. He really hasn’t moved a paw for the last 2 days outside of dinner time. Lots of cuddles and little walks should help!

Train rides

I love travelling and particularly long journeys by train, as mum always makes sure I get a seat by the window. (Not sure my trainers would approve though!) As a working Hearing Dog, I don’t have to pay to travel, so I make the most of this perk. I get a great view, a comfy seat, and mum’s coat to snuggle into. Here I am, on my way to sunny Bournemouth. Train travel rocks!

We paid a visit to the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew. Mum was wondering if I would be allowed in. Apparently, it depends on the mood of the security hoomans on the gate. (Can you see why these are not my favourite people?) Sometimes they let dogs in, sometimes they don’t. Mum thinks it’s all about how some people need a power-trip. Ron explained that I’m a hearing dog and they whisked us through. I didn’t even have to wear my coat. Yaay!

We went to visit the greenhouses and they were just great. Mum’s favourite was the waterlily house, but it was far too hot for me in there and I started whining. Mum took a pic and we left sharpish. Yes, those lilies are real!

We saw the oldest greenhouse in the world and the newest one at Kew, it’s amazing how different they are. The old one has lots of very old and large palm trees and holes in the metal floor. The new one is much smaller and has air conditioning for the plants, which are all really tiny. Check them out, old and new….

My favourite greenhouse has plants from 7 world zones. Lots of lovely colourful cacti but mum said I wasn’t to touch them as they bite!

This greenhouse has a pond and catfish live there. There was a sign saying not to feed them as they bite. Hmmm. This isn’t a very friendly greenhouse – can you see the catfish?

Photobucket

Underneath the pond, we could look at pond life through windows. Waaaay too many fish! Mum liked this as we could look into a different world and, as she keeps saying at work, “If you want to be a fish, you have to think like a fish”.

We stopped for lunch and I got lots of attention. A waiter brought me a big bowl of water which was very welcome on such a hot day. I also got some crisps from some nice girls. Then Ron started feeding me his sandwich… tee hee … another one bites the dust! Mum tried Kew’s own-brew beer and gave it the thumbs up. Then I had a quick play with my ball. There was so much space!

We walked around the park and saw the Japanese Garden and old palaces. We even spotted a peacock but it ran away when mum got her camera out.

What a great day out. We only saw half of the gardens so will be coming back another day.
